Fainting Goat Kittens Video

Charlie and Spike are two kittens with myotonia congenita, otherwise known as 'fainting goat' syndrome. At the slightest sound or movement, the kittens respond by collapsing and falling into a rigid paralysis which lasts about a minute before they return to normal. If a pin drops they drop too! Unfortunately, both cats have passed away but this video will mean there memories are not forgotten. RIP little ones! Here is a video of them:

This condition has hardly ever before been diagnosed in a cat, is rarely found in dogs and is more common in goats. The kittens were able to walk, but they could not run or jump. Aside from this they were normal fun kittens.
